What’s the best scent to use early in the season?
There are a lot of options when it comes to hunting scents. For early season hunting, usually a curiosity or hunger type scent will be your best option. One such scent is Select Doe Urine™, a mild, non-threatening territorial attractor. This lure contains non-estrus doe urine that masks human scent, appeals to the curiosity instinct of the buck and then acts as a calming agent to reduce fear.
Another great curiosity scent is Buck-Nip®. It is to deer, what cat-nip is to a cat. It really attracts bucks early-season and continues to work great all season long. Buck-Nip® is made from secret plant derivatives and does not contain urine.
Apple and Acorn Scents are really good masking scents, and also work as food enticers.
Perhaps one of the best all season lures has to be Trail’s End® #307®. Trail's End® #307® breaks a lot of the standard rules and fits into a category of its own. Trail's End® #307® was the first scent that Wildlife Research Center® introduced onto the deer attractor market. To this day, it is still one of the most popular products among the thousands of loyal hunters who use Wildlife Research Center® products year after year.
When we began developing Trail's End® #307® our goal was to develop the most effective, best possible attractor. We tried many of the commonly used oils and musks and we were not satisfied with their performance. We tested over 100 different natural ingredients, until we found several that are not well known, but really bring in the deer. Then we tried hundreds of different formulas made with these various ingredients. Our final result was - Trail's End® #307®.
Trail's End® #307® is a high-powered Buck Lure with the right blend of oils and other ingredients added to make it deadly on Bucks and just about irresistible to Does - Before, During, and After the rut. It strongly appeals to sex and curiosity.
Other companies have tried to imitate Trail's End® #307®, but have not been successful. For all practical purposes, it simply can't be done and the imitations have not been successful at catching the important subtle parts of the smells.
Trail’s End® #307® is simply the best overall buck lure a hunter can use!
